Famous writer and author Chetan Bhagat has almost firmed up an inseparable link with the Indian film industry. Earlier, his first novel 'Five Point Someone' was loosely adapted in the Hindi movie '3 Idiots', which was later remade into Tamil, under the direction of Shankar, starring three ace actors as the protagonists, titled 'Nanban'.
Next in line to make waves in both worlds is his novel 'Three Mistakes Of My Life', which has been adapted in the recent Hindi release, 'Kai Po Che'. The movie is a moving portrait of friendship, loss and forgiveness.
Talks are on by the production house UTV Motion Pictures, for the remake of this film in Tamil.
Chetan Bhagat's first novel 'Five Point Someone' was loosely adapted in the Hindi movie '3 Idiots', which was later remade into Tamil titled 'Nanban'.
The head of the South Division of UTV Motion Pictures, Mr Dhananjayan said "The film 'Kai Po Che' is one of the finest movies on the life of three friends, like 'Nanban'. We are in the talks with two leading directors for the Tamil remake."
South Indian big names like directors Linguswamy and Venkat Prabhu appreciated KPC on critical grounds. Actor Jiiva was not all praise for the movie, but also showed interest in working as a protagonist in the remake.
Buzz has it that either director Radha Mohan or Venkat Prabhu will wield the megaphone, and Jiiva will be roped in for a lead role in the Tamil remake of the film.
